Best of Spring & Summer 2024 Influencer Choice List logoNEW YORK, NY | March 1, 2024 — Toy and game companies are invited to submit their new products for the spring and summer season to be voted on by leading influencers with millions of social media followers and monthly views. Chosen products will be named to the official “Best of Spring & Summer 2024 Influencer Choice List,” presented by The Toy Association™ and powered by Clamour, producers of the largest industry summit for professional online video influencers.

“Each toy submitted for this opportunity will undergo evaluation by digital content creators that kids watch on TikTok, YouTube, Instagram, and other platforms,” said Kristin Morency Goldman, senior director of strategic communications at The Toy Association. “These influencers’ selections resonate with today's generation of kids, helping to drive sales and excitement for the season's most sought-after toys.”

The influencers from the Clamour network who will be casting their votes are required to have a minimum monthly following of at least one million views on their main platform and a social reach of more than half a million followers.

Voting will take place online from April 22 to May 3. No employees or representatives of Clamour or The Toy Association will have any role in determining the selected products.

"By aligning the influential perspectives of content creators with products from reputable brands, we're providing parents and other gift-givers trustworthy toy and game suggestions," said Victoria Fener, COO of Clamour. "Our collaboration with The Toy Association ensures that we deliver a curated list of products that will both entertain and educate this spring and summer season."

The cost to nominate a product is $249 for Toy Association members and $299 for non-members. There is a fee of $149 for each additional product submitted by the same company. The “Best of Spring & Summer 2024 Influencer Choice List” will be unveiled in mid-May and the deadline for submissions is Friday, April 12, 2024 at midnight (Eastern).
